The archives

Points of interest for the modern erudite and contemporary polymath. Published Monday through Thursday. Bonus publications appear sporadically on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The Real Adam is the journal of Adam Keys, wherein he attempts to better understand the systems of the world. Focus is placed on cognitive and linguistic systems, financial systems, economics, creating through software, popular culture and its reflection in humor, the calming effect of various domestic and wild animals, urban design, architecture, and that which is awesome.

Collections of the fine work of others are collected in the curated section. This site would go largely silent without the contributions of these fine creators. The success of the author and the greatness of the web that we move about is largely due to them.

Please enjoy some of the highlights of the site:
